Répliques Barrett M82 Airsoft
Short history of the Barrett M82
The Barrett M82, standardized by the U.S. Army as the M107, is a semi-automatic, recoil-operated sniper rifle developed by the U.S. company Barrett Firearms Manufacturing. Despite its designation as an anti-materiel rifle, it is used by some armed forces as an anti-personnel system. The M107 variant is also called Light Fifty for its .50 chambering and considerably lighter weight compared to previous applications.
It should be remembered that the Barrett M82 sniper rifle is legendary and a true benchmark in military and law enforcement circles as one of the most accurate and effective sniper rifles on the market.
Barrett M82 Airsoft Specifics
The Barrett M82 airsoft replica can be considered a metal replica, except for some plastic and rubber parts. The handle is made of plastic and the pad is made of thick rubber. It is a bit lighter than the M107 airsoft replica, mainly because the M107 is made of steel, while the M82 is coated with a zinc alloy.
The range and accuracy of the Barrett M82 airsoft sniper rifle is exactly what you would expect from a precision rifle. The Barrett M82 airsoft replica is not designed to be a complete airsoft sniper rifle, but it can easily be upgraded with parts from other airsoft sniper rifles such as V2 and AEG components. With a long barrel length, there is plenty of room to modify and upgrade the Barrett M82.
Finally, it should be noted that the Barrett M82 airsoft is an easy to maintain weapon. Regular cleaning and re-lubrication of the compression parts will keep it perfectly sealed, like any self-respecting airsoft sniper rifle.
